Youth Incarceration bill bad for Kentucky

KFTC’s vision statement reads:

We are working for a day when Kentuckians – and all people – enjoy a better quality of life…When all people have health care, shelter, food, education, and other basic needs…When children are listened to and valued…When discrimination is wiped out of our laws, habits, and hearts.

Ask Governor Bevin to veto Youth Incarceration Bill

The 2018 General Assembly is mostly over, with just a few days left for the Governor to veto bills. Members and Kentuckians are processing, listening, and strategizing about what comes next. In the meantime, take this one last action.

Please call Governor Bevin and ask him to veto House Bill 169.

Kentucky deserves better than this. Kentuckians can do better than this.

Dear [fname],

Stand for Kentucky

If you want to have your voice heard and your face seen, Standing for Kentucky, you can join with KFTC members and allies to take any or all of these actions:

Political powers showed their worst; we work to build the best

KFTC works for an open, healthy democracy and a high quality of life for all people. In recent days we witnessed some of the best examples of democratic participation and the worst examples of political manipulation. As legislators passed bills that undermine our democratic values and sense of basic fairness, Kentuckians stood up on the steps of the capitol and across the state to demonstrate the grassroots power at the heart of democracy.

As we move forward in this fight, it’s important that we stand together. We are working for a Kentucky that we haven’t yet achieved, where politicians don’t have the power to divide us. By being part of a movement that is inclusive and builds off the strength that we have when we work together, we can create such a Kentucky.

Kentucky Lawmakers Limit Black Lung Claims Reviews Despite Epidemic

A measure signed into law in Kentucky this past week would prevent federally-certified radiologists from judging X-rays in state black lung compensation claims, leaving diagnoses of the disease mostly to physicians who typically work for coal companies.
